Harry Sellers, of this city, and Thomas Lowry, ot Walton, have taken positions on the Panhandle railroad, the former as a fireman and the latter as a freight brakeman. Despite the protests of the traveling salesmen and others against the new interchangeable mileage booc, general passenger agents are determined to give the mileage a fair test, thinking it has real merit and will, after modified, ^.become more popular. Wahash train crews, it Is stated, are Indignant that the general superintendent, In Issuing orders that they secure their winter suits,^ has, at the bottom of the order, noted that these suits must be purchased from certain firms in Chicago, Toledo or St. Louis, naming the firms. The statement of the Panhandle for September, when analyzed, shows aa Increase in earnings applicable to dividends of nearly 80 per cent when compared with September, 1896. The first nine months in this year the Manhandle lines earned fixed charges, 4 per cent on tbe preferred stock, and September 80th had over $100.000 in excess ot the sum required. From remarks by members of the Pennsylvania inspection party It is evident that they returned east with a much better opinion of the Michigan division of the Vandalia than they had heretofore entertained,both as to the business it is BOW doing and that in prospect. When theMcKeen tyadlcate secured control of the Michigan division it was thought, to be a very shrewd move, and if the Pennsylvania people want to get rid of It thpre are parties, it is stated, who would readily step In and assume: its obligations and'operate it.

Bow Some Sects Name Their Children. A Hindoo baby is named when 12 days old and usually by the mother. Sometimes the father wishes for another name than that selected by the mother. In that case two lamps are placed over the two names, and the name over which the lamp burns brightest is the one given to the child, In the Egyptian family the parents choose a name for their baby by lighting three wax candles. To each of these they give a name, one of three always belonging to some deified personage. The candle that burns the longest bestows tbe name upon the baby. The Mohammedans sometimes write desirable names on five slips of paper, and these they place in the Koran. The name upon the first slip drawn out is given to the child. The children of the Alnos, a people living in northern Japan, do not receive their names until they are 5 years old. It is the father who cbeu chooses the name by which the child is afterward to be called. The Chinese give their boy babies a name in addition to their surnames, and they roust call themselves by these names autil they are 20 years old. At that age the father gives his .son u new came. The Chinese cars so little for their girl babies that thf-y do not give them a baby name, but just call them No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, and so on, according to tbeir birth. How to Slake Use of Crnde OH. It is one of the best oils for oiling a hardwood floor, it cleans out the dust and gives a soft, new polish with little robbing. The writer does not know of any polish with which the hardwood interior of houses may be so successfully treated, after it has become scratched and worn, and it is equally good for old scratched furniture. It does not possess so disagreeable a:a odor as kerosene or benzine, and what odor it has quickly evaporates. ' Crude oil is a popular remedy for rheumatism and various diseases of the skin. Its use for this purpose is of ancient date. Many of the healing wells of old were nothing more than petro leum wells. The Balm well of St. Catherine, situated over the coal mines near Edinburgh, was one of the mosc famous of these holy wells, and :.t is not strange that a superstitious age ascribed a miraculous origin to the wonderful healing oil which floated oa its surface. How to Transfer the Color of a Leaf.

Parity of the Two Aletals Could Be Maintained, bat the Artificial Gold Vain* Could Not — Tru« Inwardness of Lombard Street's Opposition to Silver. The London Times of recent date contained a letter from Sir Thomas Henry Farrar. He was a member of the British royal commission appointed in 1SS6 "to inquire into the recent changes in the relative values of the precious metals, shown by the decrease in the gold price of silver." His letter to The Times occupies three columns and is on the subject of bimetallism and the Indian mints. Instead of opening the Indian mints again to the coinage of silver rupees he advocates the adoption of the gold standard for that country, says the Kansas City Times. He discusses at length the French and American proposal for bimetallism at a fixed ratio. Of course I he does not believe that "either the United States or France or both united could possibly by opening the mints create a demand for silver which would maintain its gold value at the ratio of 15% to 1. Nevertheless Lord Farrar fe.lt called upon to state what the effect of bimetallism would be if it succeeded in maintaining the parity lietween the metals, or, as the bankers call it, "a par of exchange," at the ratio of lu}^ to 1. But here conies an astounding admission on the subject from as high an authority as can be found in Great Britain. The British commission consisted of 12 members, six of whom were uncompromising mouometallists and the other six equallj- firm bimetallists. Lord Farrar was cme of the former. Out of all England he was one of the six chosen to uphold the gold standard cause. We repeat, therefore, that he must be accepted as a high authority. He stands today as he did then. Alarmed by the suggestion that the Bank of England may admit silver as a part of its reserve, he rushes to the defense of an exclusive gold reserve, and, fearful lest the Bank of England may influence the public mind in some degree to believe that the gold standard party regards silver still as one of the precious metals, he proceeds to attempt the annihilation of that metal. Hitherto monomutallists have all insisted that until all nations could conie into the agreement the free and unlimited coinage of silver would not restore the parity. Over and over again they have been answered that the free and unlimited coinage of both metals in the single nation of France did maintain the parity during two generations. But this Englishman, comes out from behind the false premises of his fellows and declares that bimetallism would be objectionable, not because the parity between the two- metals could not be maintained, but because the present artificially created value of gold could not be maintained. Here are his very words: "Supposing the proposal succeeded. Its effect would be in all parts of the British empire and all gold standard countries that the standard of value would be altered, enabling debtors to discharge gold debts with silver at the ratio of 15,Hj to 1, because any one could take silver to the French or American mints and get it coined into francs or dollars, which, on the hypothesis that rhc plan succeeds and a. stable exchange is secured, would be worth in the markets of the world, including London, one-tiltccuth and a half of their weight in gold. It would enable the United States or the French government, supposing them to owe debts abroad, to use the enormous stocks of silver they possess in paying those debts with less than half the silver with •which they could now pay them. "Such a change would te good for neither India nor any other country which values common honesty. Such a change would be most injurious to Great Britain and the British empire." His declaration is that the ratio of 15% to 1 "would mean that the pres-j ent gold value of silver would hare to I be increased 125 per cent" This is not' the correct way to state the change that •would occur. It is true that the value ol gold measured in gold is exactly par. The value of a gold dollar measured in silver bullion is about $2.25. The value of the silver bullion in a dollar, measured in gold, is about 45 cents. The effect of bimetallism would be to speedily increase the value at silver 55 per cent, which would bring it up to 100 cents on the dollar, while it would reduce the value of gold about 45 per cent, bringing it down to 100 cente on the dollar. In other words, it -would squeeze oat the extra valno -which bag liecn legislated into gold Mid -would re•tore to silver the value which, but legislated oat of it , Thjj extract, frqpi .$he Reasonable Prices.
